Literary Junkies [v. 1]

So I missed it by a day, but yesterday I dedicated my post to the Sandy Hook victims and didn't want to post anything else. Glad I found this link-up because I absolutely love to read. You can ask my sister, Lindsey. Pretty sure she used to make fun of me for how much I read :)

1] What are you currently reading? Tell us about it.
I am currently finishing of LOTR: Return of the King. 
So. good. 
I will admit, I'm not an avid Tolkien fan, but then again I say that comparing myself to my husband who is an over-the-top LOTR fan, to the point he knows, loves, and frequently visits The Encyclopedia of Arda for funsies. This book has taken me the longest to read of probably any book I've read in years. I think because he is constantly painting word pictures, I struggle to read through it as quickly as say a Karen Kingsbury book. However, I like it none the less and hope to soon be finished.

2] If you could choose any author in the world to write a story based on your life, who would you choose? Why?
Hmmm...probably Karen Kingsbury. Or Francine Rivers. Because I love the way they weave their stories. And as far as Kingsbury goes, she already does that on a pretty consistent basis with others lives through her "Forever in Fiction".
3] Tell us about your favorite place to read.
Well, the answer to this honestly depends on my mood. Some days I long to be inside a Starbucks Coffee or some other coffee house with a good cup of jo. Then there are times I want to be snuggled under a blanket tucked into the corner of my couch with natural light seeping in through my windows. Still others I love to grab a blanket and head to the park to find a nice space either next to or close to trees. And which one all depends on my mood. Though these days, the couch usually has to suit me because I don't feel like packing up myself and a baby to get out. Takes too long :)

4] What books would you buy for lovers of a) suspense/mystery, b) chicklit, c) comedy, d) literary fiction, e) nonfiction, f) classics, g) biography? (You can choose how many of those subcategories you want to talk about.)
My mind is a bit fried and the only thing I can come up with right now is probably my favorite classic that I've read to date:

And that's all I have for you guys.

  1. You know, I'm honestly not sure. :) But I can tell you it is definitely worth reading, especially if you're a Dostoevsky fan.
